The Asbestos Corrugated Sheath 
NATURE OF . Hk Asbestos "Century" Shin- 

MATER1AL 5 ' . a ^ ^ f e w^ 

cries, is composed solely 01 asbestos 
fibre and hydraulic or Portland cement in the proportion 
of about 15 and 85 per cent respectively. This mixture is 
scientifically combined in the presence of a sufficiently 
large volume of water to bring the cement into a colloid 
state, and the product subjected to a pressure of about 650 
tons to the square foot. The result is a smooth, even, cor- 
rugated sheet, 27^ inches in width, in even foot lengths 
from 4 to 10 feet inclusive, the sheets varying from 3/16 
to 5/16 inch in thickness, in no part of the sheet running 
below 3/16 inch, which is the advertised thickness of the 
material. Thee rrugations are eleven in number, 2 x / 2 
inches wide and 1 inch deep from top surface to bottom 
-urface of the corrugation. The Asbestos Corrugated 
Sheathing is comparatively light in weight, from 2.8 t« j 
pound to the square foot, is extremely hard, dense in 
1 :tur< waterproof, fireproof and 1 1 messing in common 
with all concretes that unique virtue of becoming hardei

POINTS ON 
APPLICATION 



With reference to the application 
of Asbestos Corrugated Sheathinj 
there is little to add beyond the gen- 
eral statement that it is applied in practically the same 
manner as corrugated iron or steel, and the same tvpe of 

mechanics that usually handle the application of the latter 

!/., sheet metal workers, will be found the best and 
most economical in the long run for large installation- <>i 
\sbestos Corrugated Sheathing. Their v e is some- 
what higher than that paid the ordinary roofer, but this 
additional wage cost is well warranted. 

As in applying corrugated iron, the men should work 

in pairs — a rivt r M and a "bucker-up with- netime 

an apprentice boy for an a ant.

The cost of applying Asbestos Cor- 
C0ST rugated Sheathing will, of course, 

vary with the type of construction to be handled. If there 
is much scaffolding to be done, this will have its relative 
effect upon the average cost ''per square" (ioo square 
feet finished), but in general it will run somewhat lower 
than corrugated iron, being much easier to cnt, fit and 
handle, and the corrugations fitting together smooth and 
tight with a variation of hardly 1/16 of an inch. We 
have records of the cost of application ranging ordinarily 
from Si. 00 to §2. 00 per square, the average being some- 
where between these two figures. This cost, of course, 
depends mainly upon local conditions. 



The first point to be looked after. 

STRUCTURE where Asbe ^ los Corrugated Sheath- 
ing is to be employed, is the proper 

arrangement of the superstructure, purlins, etc., for its 
reception. The material itself will weigh about three 
pounds to the square foot, which compares with abou! 
a 14 or 15 gauge corrugated sheet iron and steel. The 
roof which it is proposed to cover with the Asbestos Cor- 
rugated sheathing should have not less than one-quarter 
pitch oi ix inches ri to the foot. The purlins for it 
reception should not be paced more than 30 to 36 inches 
from center to center. 

1 r roofing purpo- - th<- A.sb< Corrugated Sheath- 

in should be given not less than six inches end lap and 
(wo corrugations side lap, while for use as siding, one cor- 
rugation side lap and not les- than four inches end lap will 
iffir Of course, in the c< f siding, the girK or sup- 
] rts can be spaced much further apart than on the roof.

from iron or copper wire, although we can supply the 
one-inch diameter lead washers used in connection with 
the ordinary tie-wire fastening. If a copper or iron tie- 
wire fastening is specified, the loop of wire is simply 
passed through the sheets at their lap and clinched at 
the bottom of the purlin, the two incisions in the sheet 
being protected by one-inch diameter lead washers as 
shown by Fig. 4- A. 




("'DIAMETER LEAD WASHER 




TIE WIRE 




FIG.4A 



Of course this latter scheme is not considered as gcod 
a fastening as the independent tie-wire, as the constant 
shifting of the sheets has a tendency to saw the holes 
larger and larger. See Fig. 4-B. 

We have thoroughly 
tested out the alumi- 
num wire for fasten- 
ing purposes and can 
recommend it except 
where there is a pre- 
dominance of a very 
strong saline atmos- 
phere, as, forinstance, 
in tropical countries 
adjacent to or entirely 
-unrounded by the sea , 
under which conditions copper should be specified instead, 
as aluminum is disintegrated by the chemical action of 
the sodic salt present in the salt-laden atmosphere.

Corrugated Sheathing, which cannot flattenout or buckle, 
a crack in the sheets will very naturally occur. This 
expansion joint may be of any type that the engineer may 
think best, either in the nature of a sheet lead joint or 
may be taken care of by simply putting in an extra sheet 
all the way down the roof with four or five corrugatior 
extra lap loosely fastened with tie wires without bolting. 
The contraction and expansion of the steelwork on an 
building of size \ produces a stress or strain of consid- 
erable magnitude and one which no material can with- 
stand if it is rigidly 1 tened to the memb< or fastened 
.heet to sheet. Expansion joints must therefore be used.
